2012 PBA Philippine Cup Roundup: November 4, 2012 - Nov 5, 2012

The fan favorite Ginebra Kings are languishing in the doldrums.

They just lost their fifth straight game.

Theyre averaging about 21 turnovers per game against 19 assists. That means they turn the ball over more than they actually find someone in good scoring position.

Their scoring has dipped from 104.0ppg in their first two games to just 80.4ppg in their last five matches.

Oh, and Dylan Ababou just went down with an ACL tear. Hes out for the better part of the next year.

His name is added to a sick bay list that already has Kerby Raymundo, Allein Maliksi, and Jayjay Helterband.

With all these curveballs going the Kings way, whod want to be Siot Tangquincen?

This isnt really meant to pick apart the reasons why the Kings are in a tailspin. They have a deep, if depleted, roster. Mark Caguioa is still there. LA Tenorios healthy. Rudy Hatfield, Willy Wilson, Mike Cortez, and Rico Maierhofer are all solid. Keith Jensen and Chris Ellis are two athletic young uns who should be match-up nightmares for anyone.

But theyre losing, and losing BAD. Three of their five losses have been double-digit defeats. Their second win of the season (against Rain or Shine last October 7) was a 4-point nail-biter.

Only the Batang Pier are worse, and thats not saying much. That might just be good news, however, as Ginebra faces the rookie franchise next. The Kings have a golden chance to redeem themselves in that game, but then they face a trifecta of terrors in Talk N Text, Alaska, and Rain or Shine.

Yikes.

The fan favorite Gin Kings are in the doldrums, and they might stay there a little longer.

Game Recaps:
BARAKO BULL ENERGY COLAS over GLOBAL PORT BATANG PIER, 95-94

Ronal Tubid made up for his booboo in a previous play and converted the go-ahead to lead Barako Bull to a pulsating 95-94 win over GlobaPort in the 2013 PBA Philippine Cup Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

After missing a point blank attempt, Tubid received a pass from a falling Sean Anthony after a wild scramble for the loose ball. The wingman from Iloilo hit an undergoal basket with 18.1 seconds left in the game to push Barako Bull.

I told Ronald before the scramble, instead of passing, step up to the plate. This is his game. Hes our No. 1 guy in the shooting guard position, said Barako Bull coach Junel Baculi.

The Batang Pier had a chance to steal the game, but Josh Vanlangdingham missed a three-pointer as time expired. The Energy Colas snapped a three-game losing streak to push their win-loss mark to 3-5.

Medyo struggling ang team. Hopefully this win can prop up us especially Josh (Urbiztondo). We need Josh in our team, said Barako Bull coach Junel Baculi.

The problem is we have to improve our offensive sets. We cant rely much on Rico (Villanueva) on the post because teams are scouting us. We need to inject some variations in our offense.

Tubid led the Energy Colas with 19 points, but almost turned into a goat after his late miss. Villanueva added 18 points while Mick Pennisi and Leo Najorda contributed 13 and 11, respectively, for Barako Bull.

GlobalPorts loss spoiled Mark Yees 20-point performance, one shy of matching the career-high he set two years ago. Willie Miller had 17 points in 43 minutes, but missed a crucial attempt before Tubids basket.

BAR 95- Tubid 19, Villanueva 18, Pennisi 13, Najorda 11, Anthony 9, Urbiztondo 9, Yap 9, Kramer 4, Alvarez 3, Ballesteros 0
GLO 94- Yee 20, Miller 17, Manuel 12, Deutchman 11, Lingganay 10, Vanlandingham 7, Vergara 7, Al-Hussaini 5, Antonio 3, Adducul 2, Mandani 0, Guevarra 0
QS: 22-18, 49-48, 77-74, 95-94

RAIN OR SHINE ELASTO-PAINTERS over MERALCO BOLTS, 106-81

Rain or Shine caught Meralco on a bad night and posted an emphatic 106-81 win in the 2013 PBA Philippine Cup on Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Elasto Painters defense took the energy out of the Bolts early, allowing them to coast to the much-needed victory to join Alaska at second spot with a 5-2 win-loss mark.

One way to redeem ourselves coming off a loss (against Talk N Text) was to play our best game against the hottest team, said Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao.

But Im really surprised we beat them in the manner we beat them today. We just got our rhythm both on offense and defense and were able to run our breaks.

The 25-point margin was the teams most since its 113-83 demolition of Air 21 last March 16 in the Commissioners Cup.

Jireh Ibanes led all scorers with 23 points and was Guiaos main defensive weapon on Meralcos deadly backcourt of Mac Cardona and Sol Mercado.

Beau Belga added 16 points, Ryan Arana had 15, while JR Quinahan contributed 10 in a balanced attack for the Elasto Painters, who led by much as 33 points, 94-61, midway in the fourth.

Cardona finished with 20 but Mercado struggled with nine points on 3-of-14 shooting from the field.

We were ready to play match up against their top three guards, Sol, Mac and Ronjay (Buenafe), said Guiao. We did not let them get their usual confidence and rhythm in their past four wins and I think thats the key.

Buenafe, a member of the Rain or Shine squad that won the Governors Cup last season, had a quiet 11-point output in his first game against his former team.

Meralco rookie Cliff Hodge had nine points, most of which were scored in garbage time, and 14 rebounds, 10 off the offensive end, but was plagued with foul trouble throughout the game. The Bolts record fell to 4-3.

ROS 106- Ibanes 23, Belga 16, Arana 15, Quinahan 10, Tang 9, Cruz 8, Chan 7, Rodriguez 7, Norwood 6, Matias 5, Uyloan 0, Jaime 0
MER 81- Cardona 20, Salvacion 14, Buenafe 11, Hodge 9, Mercado 9, Hugnatan 6, Bulawan 5, Borboran 4, Reyes 3, Belencion 0, Ross 0, Sharma 0, Artadi 0
QS: 25-19, 41-28, 80-53, 106-81

SAN MIG COFFEE MIXERS over BGY. GINEBRA KINGS, 78-68

San Mig Coffee pulled off a masterful 78-68 win against undermanned Barangay Ginbera San Miguel to share the second spot with two other teams in the finale of a rare triple-header in the 2013 PBA Philippine Cup Sunday before 19,718 fans at the jam-packed SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Coffee Mixers found the right mix early in the game, while the Gin Kings never found its rhythm to absorb their fifth straight defeat after starting the tournament with back-to-back wins.

The win shoved San Mig Coffee into a triple tie for the No. 2 position in the standings with Rain or Shine and the streaking Alaska with identical 5-2 win-loss records.

Joe Devance fired a game-high 18 points, including back-to-back three-pointers that helped the Mixers pull away. They erected their biggest lead at 73-51 with 7:30 remaining in the game.

Ginebra never had a serious run since.

James Yap added 14 points while Peter June Simon and Marc Pingris contributed 13 and 11, respectively, for San Mig Coffee.

We played a great defensive game plan. There were times that Ginebra could shoot us on the foot but they missed lay-ups. Their layups wont fall and it happens when you lose some games, said San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone.

We did play good defensively, although [we got] a little sloppy in the fourth. But were sharp defensively.

Already without Kerby Raymudo (flu), Ginebra lost another player in Dylan Ababou in the first half due to a suspected torn ACL. Gin Kings coach Siot Tanquingcen did not utilize Jayjay Helterbrand (hamstring) and Allein Maliksi (ankle injury) who were also nursing injuries in the game.

It is Ginebras longest losing streak since dropping five straight in the elimination round of the 2009 Fiesta Conference.

Mark Caguioa led the Gin Kings with 16 points while LA Tenorio and Chris Ellis added 12 and 11, respectively.

SMC 78- Devance 18, Yap 14, Simon 13, Pingris 11, De Ocampo 7, Barroca 6, Reavis 4, Villanueva 3, Intal 2, Gonzales 0
GIN 68- Caguioa 16, Tenorio 12, Ellis 11, Jensen 8, Mamaril 7, Maierhofer 6, Cortez 6, Ababou 2, Espiritu 0, Wilson 0, Hatfield 0
QS: 15-8, 41-29, 61-45, 78-68

Coming off a 20 point-beating at the hands of Korean powerhouse Jeonju KCC Egis, the NLEX-SCTEX Road Warriors had a strong start against defending Merlion Cup champions Shanghai Sharks in hopes of a bounce back victory.

Despite Jason Perkins' stellar showing, NLEX-SCTEX receives 20-point rout in Merlion Cup opener - 2 days ago
The NLEX-SCTEX Road Warriors looked disjointed in the opener of the 2017 Merlion Cup, falling to Korean club team Jeonju KCC Egis, 99-79, Wednesday evening at the OCBC Arena in Singapore. Jason Perkins (193-F), a pivotal member of two-time PBA D-League champions Cignal HD Hawkeyes, was the sole bright spot for the Road Warriors, finishing with 25 points on an excellent 9-for-15 shooting to go along with nine rebounds. But despite his showing, the Road Warriors were overmatched at all fron...   [read more]
